How to Tackle Naples as a First Timer

How to Tackle Naples as a First Timer

With its captivating contrast and relentless pace, Naples—which stretches from the Mediterranean to Mt. Vesuvius—can seem daunting. Tackle this coastal capital one highlight at a time, taking in its history, culture, and cuisine in small doses. Here’s how first-time visitors can fall in love with Bella Napoli.

 

Begin at the Heart

Naples’ pulsating heart is its historic center, orcentro storico. No visit to this storied city is complete without a tour of this warren of narrow lanes lined with everything from magnificent churches to tiny artisan workshops. Join a walking, biking, or Segway tour to learn about the rich local culture of this teeming neighborhood.

 

Get a Taste of the City

Home to pizza, pasta, and pastries, Naples is the food capital of southern Italy. Join a food tour of the city center to taste authentic Neapolitan pizza margherita, local sweets likebabà al rhum andsfogliatelle, and some of the best espresso in the world. If you want to take the flavor of Naples home, join a cooking class and learn how to prepare classic local dishes.


Go Beneath the Surface

The history of Naples stretches back millennia, and to really get a feel for its fascinating past, you need to head below the modern city’s streets. Join an underground tour, and discover Roman ruins and surprising ancient treasures hidden deep beneath the historic center.

 

Naples in a Glass

The hulking form of Mt. Vesuvius dominates the skyline above Naples, and its countless eruptions over the millennia have made its slopes some the most fertile in the region. Take a wine tour of lush mountain vineyards to taste the local reds and whites while drinking in views of the city. 

 

Visit Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius

Naples has long lived in peace with its volcanic neighbor, but not all nearby cities have been so lucky. Tour the ruins of ancient Pompeii to understand the devastating power of this mountain, which erupted and buried the city in 79 AD, forever freezing it in time.

 

Set Sail Across the Bay

Naples is the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the nearby Amalfi Coast as well as Sorrento and the island of Capri. Take advantage of the city’s strategic oceanfront location, and book a boat tour to one of these popular destinations.
